FENNEL POLLEN WILD CRAFTED

This soft, slender perennial plant has many culinary uses. The roots are commonly used as medicine. The bulb is shaved into salads, pickled, or roasted until achingly sweet and tender. The flowers are used as a finishing herb and flavoring for delicate spirits. The seeds are added to all sorts of foods, and medicinally they act as both a digestive and a breath freshener.

Wild fennel flower powder is best used as a finishing spice. Dust it over plates of pasta in cream or white wine sauce, salads, roasted root vegetables, grains such as farro, perhaps roasted pork, or seared scallops and white fish. The pollen is also used in chocolate and candy making these days as a decoration and finisher – particularly with truffles and caramels. Lastly, fennel pollen has a distinct place in Chinese cuisine. Steamed buns, fish, and some stir-fries are made for fennel pollen as it pairs well with star anise, cinnamon, garlic, and Szechuan pepper.
